My generous neighbor has a large established garden with some prolific fruit trees. I got some of his nashi pears as a gift. I love eating them like one would eat an apple, but for the rest of the family I had to combine the pears with some freshly harvested celery to make a crunchy salad. I had to make it again the next day, always a sign that the recipe was a good one!
1 large nashi pear
1/4 head of celery
5 cm of leek
1 1/2 table spoon fruit scrap vinegar
4 table spoons olive oil
salt and pepper
You can add chopped nuts and a bit of strong cheese if you have any on hand
Chop everything up and mix with a dressing made of the vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Serve with fresh bread, and on a hot day, a glass of chilled Prosecco.
